Clémence Roy-Darisse

Clémence Roy-Darisse is an emerging writer, actor and director, and co-director and playwright of the poetic theatre collective Les Frivoles. An eco-conscious person, she incorporates her passion for the environment and social justice into the form and content of her work. Initially trained as an actor (Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe theatre school, Danielle Fichaud, Bachelor of Theatre at the University of Ottawa), she appeared in several productions and tried her hand at directing. She obtained two creative residencies for her play Profil, and then a grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec for a staged reading of her script Laurence. In 2021, she will be playwright in residence at the Théâtre de l’Île and will perform in a production by Fâcheux Théâtre, in Gatineau. Clémence is currently working on a thesis on the role of theatre in the climate crisis.
